Posted 26 March 2009 - 04:04 PM

It started 2 days ago when I downloaded a codec.exe file that was "necessary" to view a video on trees. It immediately opened a new tab to a porn site. Immediately thereafter on Firefox 3, my google search results started being hijacked - clicking on any of them sends me to spammy search sites, via a redirect by windowsclick.com.

I'm started receiving an error message: "Google Installer has encountered a problem and needs to close" and "View Mgr" has encountered a problem and needs to close" messages. Also, when I restarted my computer and it sounded like a radio talkshow broadcast was playing in the background.I started uninstalling my Google apps and View Manager. I also located and deleted codec.exe.

Below is my HiJackThis log. Would really appreciate any help. Thank you.
